Chieftancy matter unsettles business woman in Lagos

Disturbed by the current search for her son by people suspected to be traditionalists from a village in Lagos State, over chieftaincy issue, a female trader in her mid 60s has appealed to security agents to help provide security for her son.

Mrs. Oluyemisi Adeyemi made the call as she explained that traditionalists from Omojoda (Odo Ayan) Village wanted her son Adekunle Adeyemi a Computer engineer and Pastor of a Pentecostal church to be the Chief of the Village against his wish.

The woman who resides in Bariga Lagos noted that her son and members of his family, now move from one destination to another, as fear continue to grip them that they could be hurt by the traditionalists, if he out rightly rejected the chieftaincy title.

Traditionalists in the town resolved to making my son a Chief so that he could assist in helping the Omojoda Village as calamities continue to befall the community and offer he rejected because of his Christian Faith which is against Chieftaincy issue” she said  

Mrs. Adeyemi said further “My son rejected the offer because of his Christian faith that goes against anything that has to do tradition and the fact that his late father Lawrence Adeyemi had, before his demise in 1989 cautioned his children against the occupation of the chieftaincy stool of Omojoda because of the controversies that trailed the stool in the past, even as he warned of serious consequences against any erring child.       

She explained that on several occasions her son was rushed to various hospitals as a result of his health challenge which was traced to fear, adding that suspected traditionalists  from Omojoda village were always visiting Adekunles residence, to tell him to return home to enable him accept the chieftaincy title, when he was far away in India for medical attention.

The level of threat to the lives of Adekunle, my son and members of his family and futile attempt by the suspected traditionalists to kidnap his wife and only daughter in 2018, forced them to relocate from their last residence in Ogun State to an unknown place. 

My worry is that despite their relocation, strange faces, and movements, continued to be noticeable at their former residence, heightening my fear that some people are still after them”. 

She added that recently, she received anonymous telephone calls from people suspected to be kinsmen from Omojoda Village, who during their discussions with her, vowed to deal with her son, should he refuse to accept the chieftaincy title they offered him. 

She appealed to security outfits in the country to come to Adekunles aid by ensuring that he and his family members were given adequate security so that they are not either hurt or murdered in their prime.
